We arrived an hour or so before check in time and were advised that our room would be ready in around 30 mins. We were offered tea or coffee while we waited but said we would have a glass
of wine in the bar. While we were sitting in the bar the receptionist brought our room keys to us
within a few minutes and said the room was ready and our luggage was in the room - a great
start to our 4 night stay.
The room was very well appointed with a very comfortable bed, nice furniture and a good sized
bathroom which had both a bath and a separate shower. We were on the 6th floor and this may have contributed to what was the quietest room we have ever had in a London hotel.
The room was always serviced very quickly and efficiently.
We had 3 breakfasts in the Balcon restaurant and thought that these were of a high quality
with excellent service - we ate from the menu as opposed to the buffet and thought what we had was good value for money.
We also used the bar at some point each evening and it is a very comfortable place to enjoy a drink with speedy and friendly service even when it was busy. One evening we ate from the bar menu which has a great choice and was of superb quality and value.
In summary the service throughout this was of the highest standard and we would certainly be delighted to return. It is in a great location and is close to many good restaurants and bars.
